Do your fingers come far off the guitar neck when you play? The following warm-up exercise is one of the best I know of to cure this bad habit.
This warm-up exercise (shown to me by guitar madman Steve Trovato) is one of the best I know of to cure the bad habit of letting your fingers drift far away from the guitar neck while you play. Based off a common one-finger-per-fret exercise with a dastardly twist, working through this guitar warm-up will help ingrain good left hand finger position.
Here is the tab for the exercise covered in this video.
Play with one-finger-per-fret and only move each finger when needed to play the same fret on the next string. Simply concept but not-so-simple to do!

LOL. I love it! So wear protective eye wear if needed and stay safe!
